Was Fawad Khan part MS DHONI : THE UNTOLD STORY?. The makers clear the air.
Following the buzz in media, we guessed that Neeraj Pandey escaped the public ire by chopping scenes of Fawad Khan from the biopic of Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
The makers Fox Star studios had issued a statement on involvement of Fawad Khan in the Neeraj Pandey helmed biopic. The statement received from Fox Star Studios reads, “Fawad Khan was never part of the film MS DHONI: THE UNTOLD STORY. Even when we were casting the movie, he was not in the consideration set. Dhoni is an extremely realistic biopic and we have been true to that even in our casting,”.
Earlier it was speculated that Fawad Khan will play the role of Virat Kohli in the biopic starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead.
Interestingly, on the day MS DHONI : THE UNTOLD STORY got released – 30th September 2016, while mentioning the cast and other credits in our movie review, we recollect noticing Fawad Khan's name in the movie credit list of IMDB.
Since now the makers are officially denying the involvement of Fawad Khan in the film we believe by their statement and stand corrected. Anyhow by the filing of this report, the name of Fawad Khan from the said credit list was removed.
